Each year myself and a party of friends head to a European city for a few days with the main purpose of dining at a Michelin **/*** restaurant. This year the city was Dusseldorf and the ** Restaurant Im Schiffchen. Restaurant Im Schiffchen is not in Dusseldorf itself but in Kaiserswerth a 15/20 minute journey on the U79 metro line.... More

Excellent traditional German-fare in a restaurant that a couple of centuries old... Chicken, sausages, beef, and fish. Pretty heavy, but delicious. The setting is really charming. Feels like you're in a 18th/19th century novel... A very authentic meal that gives you the real flavors of old Dusseldorf Beer is tasty and flavorful...especially the local brews. I brought some customers here... More

Well known 2 star Michelin restaurant located 15 minutes away in the village Kaiserwerth. Their most professional staff went way out of their way to celebrate my wife's birthday, including rose petals and Happy Birthday confetti on the table. Of course, the food was terrific, and there were many surprise extra courses. Even recommended a great German Reserve RED wine.... More

What a fantastic experience! From opening the taxi door for me, to packing up chocolates that came with the espresso but that I was too full to enjoy-,to take along with me for a later snack- this was an extraordinary experience. The breads were delicious, the cheese scone out standing, the service may rank as among the best ever and... More

My friends and I have eaten at Im Schiffchen three times. 2005, 2008 and this year on May 9. All of our party of five were thoroughly disappointed. We arrived at 8:15 and were sat quickly. That was about the only smooth transition of the night. From the beginning of holding our menus for at least 10 minutes before anyone... More

This restaurant was rated Michellin 2 Star, it lived off its rating and failed to maintain its standards! The tables were placed too closed together, seating was cramped. Our main courses were barely warm, the meal overall lacked memorable flavour. Wine menu was presented on iPad, totally untraditional, no wine recommendation for dishes selected. My husband was served with dried... More

located in a little village, just outside Düsseldorf. Nice setting, in a dead end street. Valet service. Restaurant is on the first floor. Very friendly and professional staff. We had the 'Herbst' Menu: nice appetizers, some very surprising as you can expect from this level of restaurants. Mains, deserts, .... all cooked to perfection. Extensive wine list with a good...
